Resolved to hike 100 times by 2014Navigation
While spending a week in Los Angeles for the private screening of Mile… Mile & A Half, a documentary about the John Muir Trail that I worked on, I had a chance to go hiking on one of my favorite trails of the Los Angeles area: Mishe Mokwa Trail in the Santa Monica...Read More
I was invited down to Los Angeles for the private screening of the documentary I worked on, Mile… Mile & a Half. While there for a few days, I had the opportunity to do two hikes. This was the first of the two. I lived in Southern California for decades, long enough...Read More
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the hardest part of a day hike is finding the motivation to get to the trailhead. For this hike, it took me a good part of the day to find enough motivation to drive north to Smith Rock State Park near Terrebonne, Oregon....Read More
As I returned to my car after this hike, I was soaked to the bone. In fact, everything I carried with me was wet. The pages of my journal were rippling, my camera had fogged the lens with condensation and stopped working.* My iPhone wasn’t doing well either, having been...Read More
I’ve already blogged about Shevlin Park (hike#3), you might recall. On that hike, most of it was through the dark using a headlamp. Not the best type of hike to take a lot of photos. Therefore, I’ll make up for that photo-light entry with this photo-heavy entry! ...Read More
With visions of kaleidoscopic colors and other-worldly-esque textures still on my mind from my jaunt around Paulina Lake two weeks ago (Hike#9), I wanted to go back and explore more of the dozens of miles of trails found in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. With a hiking...Read More

In May 2009, I decided I needed to get into better shape so I promised myself that I would hike more. 100 times by the end of that year, to be precise. And so began a love affair with hiking. Since that spring day in 2009, I have hiked over 3,000 miles of trail and I don’t see myself slowing down anytime soon.
Here are all of the hikes I’ve completed as of August 10th, 2013:
